This review is from: iBoutique 30W Edison Screw (E27) Daylight Energy Saving Light Bulb - Great For SAD Sufferers, Snooker, Pool, Hobbies, Crafts, Photography / Actual Equivalent Output: 150 Watts (Kitchen & Home)
The bulbs are bright, give a strong somewhat blue light. They are too large for anglepoise type lights and have an overall length of about 153mm, which will make them unsuitable for many fittings. They arrived together in a plastic bag not well wrapped. Delivery was an age, very slow. The cost of postage and packaging was excessive as postage was added for each bulb even though they were sent together, over £27 for six bulbs. This is something not seen if ordering with one click.

That's a bit of an unfair comment about postage. For most sellers, Amazon dictates the postage price and it is levied per item. Sellers take that into account when setting the item price and so buyers should just be concerned with the total (which may have been excessive, I don't know, but please don't blame the seller for what might appera to be a high postage charge.
Me, I'd rather but something for 1p with £5 postage charge than something for £6 and free postage.

Reviews in this section is for supposed to be about the product only. The actual product is the Bulb, not postage costs or how long it took to reach you. If you would like to mention those then that should be done by rating the seller. The seller and products both have their own indivdual sections for reviews

I often comment along similar lines, Personal View, but actually value for money is perfectly relevant to a product review. The point of my comment above is that it's total price that dictates value, not item price or postage charge in isolation.
As a seller, I get very cross with people complaining about postage (over which I have no control) when the total is lower than the Amazon price.

It must be frustrating to sell or buy multiple items which could be advantageously grouped to save delivery costs if Amazon (or other sales conduits) precludes it.

But prospective buyers only review these comments.
